Cairns Connect Overview
Undara Lava Tubes are located 275 km inland from Cairns (approximately 4 hours' drive). Over 190 000 years ago a major volcanic eruption occurred with molten lava flowing down a dry river bed. As the top layer cooled and crusted, the flow continued below leaving a series of long, dark hollow tubes. Over the years these tubes have in some places collapsed creating fertile pockets of rainforest similar to those of Madagascar and East Africa.

Apart from being an amazing geological attraction Undara has developed into a popular tourist attraction, winning many awards over the last eight years.

Accommodation is available at Undara and the facilities are good. Guided tours are conducted through the lava tubes throughout the day.
